Curb the sale of Acid: Stop selling acid like a toffee in the market..

This petition had 6 supporters

Acid Attack is a cruel and inhumane crime.There are no specific laws against acid attacks in our country.In most acid cases,the victim does not die but her face and life is ruined .Hence, acid attacks must be dealt separately and specifically and must be categorised under henious crime

The open sale of acid for domestic purposes should be controlled and preferrably banned by the Government.For Industrial,commercial and all other purposes,it must be sold under licenced dealers and its procurement be made possible against production of suitable identity proof.

India's Supreme Court had given State authorities three months to implement new rules to control over-the-counter sale of acid in 2013 but nothing has been done by the Government .All went in vain ..

It is the need of the hour that Government should take some powerful steps against this crime as it is the question of the lives  and safety of women.

Please give justice ...
